Exploring and scouting a bikepacking route to connect the bustling metropolis of Bogota with rural communities and the Chingaza National Park in Colombia.
Lael Wilcox, Joe Cruz, and filmmaker Ruglie Kaladyte created this documentary to highlight the unique ecosystem that exists outside of Bogota, Colombia and to share this challenging new bikepacking route with the world.
This is a tight down hill trail — at times trough-like with dirt walls on either side of you. Watch out for the occasional hiker or old man walking up it to his home.
Singletrack route going up the hill. Good grip. Going down its a nice technical steep run with lots of jumps which are not mandatory. Wouldn’t bet on the safety so please report to the guardian before going up.
This route follows rugged mountain roads for about 17 miles before veering off into steep, unmaintained fall line singletrack. The singletrack funnels water, so it can be a real challenge. Commercial shuttle/guide service is available.
These are two loops with classic Andes riding in the mountains southeast of Bogota. The south route loops through the village of Ubaque and the north route passes an impressive waterfall. Plenty of climbing but not as much as some Andean rides. About half singletrack overall.
